  • A Description of RSocket and Its Communication Model: Robert Roeser at QCon London

    RSocket is an asynchronous network communication protocol where communication is modelled as multiplexed streams of messages over a single network connection. In a presentation at QCon London 2019, Robert Roeser explained the reasons for creating RSocket and the communication model it uses. In the same presentation, Ondrej Lehecka described two use cases, and Andy Shi ran a demo using RSocket.

  • Designing and Building a Resilient Serverless System: John Chapin at QCon London

    In a presentation at QCon London 2019, John Chapin explained the basics of serverless technologies and how to architect and build a resilient serverless system. He also ran a demo of a how a globally distributed, highly available application can be built and run in multiple regions on AWS.

  • A Critical Look at Event-Driven Systems: Bernd Rücker at QCon London

    There is currently a hype in adoption of event-driven systems. Sometimes they are almost seen as the “magic thing” in our strive for decoupled systems, Bernd Rücker noted at the recent QCon London 2019. In his presentation he took a critical look at three common hypotheses around event-driven systems: events decrease coupling, Orchestration needs to be avoided, and Workflow engines are painful.

  • Applying Artificial Intelligence in the Agile World

    The convergence of artificial intelligence (AI) systems with the agile world is having a disruptive effect on how we build software and the types of products that we build, said Aidan Casey. By combining machine learning and deep learning we can build applications that truly learn like humans. AI bias is a very serious concern, as AI systems are only as good as the data sets used to train them.

  • Recommendations When Starting with Microservices: Ben Sigelman at QCon London

    During the years Ben Sigelman worked at Google, they were creating what we today call a microservices architecture. Some mistakes were made during this adoption, which he believes are being repeated today by the rest of the industry. In his presentation at QCon London 2019, Sigelman described his recommendations to avoid making these mistakes when starting with microservices.

  • People Are More Complex Than Computers: Growing the Equal Experts' Team and Culture

    Earlier this week, in QConLondon 2019, Mairead O’Connor from Equal Experts presented on the topic “People are more complex than computers”. In this talk, O'Connor presented on the way that Equal Experts managed to grow into a network of 1,500 people, with over 800 of them being consultants and the organisational and cultural challenges that come with creating this unique organisational structure.

  • Open Source Benefits to Innovation and Organizational Agility

    Capital One hosted their 3rd Agile Conference in December 2018 in Virginia. Among the guest speakers, Andrew Aitken, global open source strategy leader at Wipro, presented the state of open source and how it is becoming an industry-wide organizational keystone strategy in driving innovation and in retaining top talent.

  • Building Services at Scale at Airbnb: QCon London Q&A

    The re-architecture to SOA at Airbnb improved the performance of the services and site reliability. Faster build and deploy times led to increased developer productivity, and improving clarity and boundaries for ownership increased efficiency. Jessica Tai, a software engineer at Airbnb, presented Airbnb’s Great Migration: Building Services at Scale at QCon London 2019.

  • How to Grow Teams That Can Fail without Fear: QCon London Q&A

    Blameless failure starts with building a culture where failure is acknowledged, shared, investigated, remedied, and prevented, said Emma Button, a DevOps and cloud consultant, at QCon London 2019. Visualising the health and state of your system with CI/CD practices can increase trust and ownership and invite people to help out when things fail.

  • San Francisco: QCon.ai Schedule Nearing Completion

    April 15-17 software engineering teams will gather in the Bay area for the Second Annual QCon.ai Software Conference. QCon.ai is focused on helping teams adopt and validate roadmaps in machine learning by hearing and learning from those that are doing it today. What truly differentiates QCon.ai is its machine learning focus given through the lens of the software engineer.

  • Portia Tung on Playful Leadership

    Playful leadership is a serious topic - play is the most effective and efficient way of enabling individuals to learn, lead and work together. It fosters a growth-oriented approach that enables people to change with relative ease and even joy instead of resistance and anguish. Play is important to well being and creativity in the workplace.

  • The Risk of Climate Change and What Tech Can Do: QCon London Q&A

    Data centres create more emissions than the aviation industry due to energy usage and 24x7 availability, and the growth of the cloud computing and mining of cryptocurrencies is increasing the impact technology has on our climate. Moving existing servers to providers who use renewable sources of electricity could lead to planet-wide climate improvements. A QCon Q&A with Jason Box and Paul Johnston.

  • Airbnb's Migration from Monolith to Services

    Jessica Tai spoke at QCon San Francisco 2018 about Airbnb's move from a Ruby on Rails monolith architecture to a service-oriented architecture. The company has expanded from 200 engineers in 2015 to 1,000 and has less downtime due to rollbacks and has improved performance with page load times up to 10x faster.

  • Using Contract Testing for Applications with Microservices

    When using microservices, integration points between services are a hotbed for bugs. With consumer-driven contract testing, the consumer defines the contract and verifications are made against it within the providers build/test lifecycle. Contract testing fits well into a microservice workflow and kills your integration bugs, argued Maarten Groeneweg at the European Testing Conference 2019.

  • Release Management and Customer Experience at Snapchat

    In 2019, T-Mobile hosted Snapchat executive, Tammarrian Rogers, and release manager, Claire Reinert, who presented how, in three years, they transformed their release management processes and culture which directly improved their customer experience.
